Location

We’ll be in the heart of it all – right in downtown Washington, D.C. – a city bubbling with political energy as the election draws near. The Renaissance Washington, D.C. Downtown Hotel is just moments from some of the city’s best attractions, including the National Mall, the White House, the Smithsonian, the National Portrait Gallery, and more. We will provide sightseeing and unique-to-Washington recommendations for those interested in extending their stay, so invite your friends to join you as you explore our nation’s capital. More details to come.

Plan to arrive by 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, November 2 for a professional development session featuring TRAC Media and others.
